Buffalo Bills Sign Vince Young
But if you are expecting Young to make his debut soon, don’t get your hopes up. When it came to projecting Young’s role with the Bills, general manager Buddy Nix offered no guarantees except to say the starting job’s already taken by Ryan Fitzpatrick, leaving Young competing for a backup job.
“We’re looking always to try to improve our team,” Nix said. “It’s a competition for the backup quarterback job and not the starter. … He knows it. That’s the way it is.”
The Bills announced the deal Friday, a little over a week after the 2006 NFL offensive rookie of the year worked out for the team.
Citing a league source, ESPN.com reported the contract is worth $2 million with another $1 million available in bonuses.
